Summary This project will consider whether the presence of anxiety symptoms is related to increase Cardiovascular Risk in a cohort of healthy ageing women from the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project (WHAP).
Project description: Mental health is a key predictor of overall health and wellbeing. Anxiety is widely
considered to be positively correlated to cardiovascular risk, and is thought to be responsible for exacerbating existing cardiovascular conditions. However the precise mechanism of this pathophysiology has not yet been discovered. This project will consider whether the presence of anxiety symptoms is related to increase Cardiovascular Risk in a cohort of healthy ageing women from the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project (WHAP).
The main opportunities for this project are:
- An opportunity for publication
- Hands-on involvement in participant evaluation
- Work with a large database with over 20 years of lifestyle data
This project would be suited to someone with an interest in cardiovascular health.
